Thanks to Committee and exhibitors for a good day. I was pleased with the entry, and with the quality of a number of exhibits. Shame that some had to go home with just their class wins as they were worthy of more. Most exhibits were well presented, some were a little â€œsoftâ€ and may benefit from good hard exercise rather than just free running.
